The Colleges and the Courts: The Developing Law of the Student and the College. 1976 Updating Supplement.
Chambers, M. M.
Constant progress and change in the law of higher education have necessitated this update of the original 1972 edition of this document (the original appeared with the same title) and its first updated supplement. Approximately 60 court decisions are cited that deal with students and their relationship to their colleges. Specific areas discussed include the obligation of divorced parents to pay college expenses; student admission; race and sex discrimination; exclusion for academic reasons; activity fees; differential tuition fees for out-of-state students; some aspects of student financial aid; various facets of student life; dormitory residents; search and seizure; confidentiality of student records; torts against students; freedom of speech; student organizations; freedom of student press; due process in disciplinary proceedings; disciplinary rules; state statutes applied to campus disruptions; and executive, judicial, and grand-jury overkill.
